There are two different guitars, both referred to as RR6. One was intended for export (the "US type") and one for domestic sale (the "Japanese type").
The made-for-export (US) model has an alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard with dot inlays, a single Dimarzio humbucker, 22 frets and a fixed bridge with string-through-body design. It has a tone (nearest the output jack) and volume (nearest the pickup) control and a mini switch, and a 628 mm scale.
'RR', incidentally, stands for 'Rock and Roll'.
